And heaven defend your good souls, that you think I will your serious and great business scant For she is with me:
But I do think it is their husbands’ faults If wives do fall: say that they slack their duties And pour our treasures into foreign laps; Or else break out in peevish jealousies, Throwing restraint upon us; or say they strike us, Or scant our former having in despite; Why, we have galls; and though we have some grace, Yet have we some revenge.
There are no more uses of "scanty" in the play.
